Hanover is a census-designated place (CDP) and the main village in the town of Hanover in Grafton County, New Hampshire, United States. The population of the CDP was 8,636 at the 2010 census, [1] out of 11,260 people in the entire town of Hanover. The CDP includes the campus of Dartmouth College.


The CDP is in the southwestern corner of the town of Hanover, bordered to the south by the city of Lebanon and to the west by the Connecticut River, which forms the New Hampshire– Vermont boundary. To the north the CDP extends upriver as far as the outlet of Storrs Pond. The eastern border of the CDP follows the outlet brook upstream to Storrs Pond, then continues up Camp Brook and Reservoir Road to Grasse Road at the outlet of the Lower Hanover Reservoir. The eastern border continues south on Grasse Road, then west on Wheelock Street to a line east of Low Road. The CDP border runs over Velvet Rocks and down an unnamed brook to Mink Brook, then west to New Hampshire Route 120, which it follows south to the Lebanon city line. [2]

New Hampshire Route 10 passes through the center of Hanover, leading north 10 miles (16 km) to Lyme and south 4 miles (6 km) to West Lebanon. Route 10A (West Wheelock Street) leaves Route 10 at the town center and leads west across Ledyard Bridge 1 mile (1.6 km) to Interstate 91 in Norwich, Vermont. New Hampshire Route 120 leads southeast from Hanover 5 miles (8 km) to Interstate 89 and 6 miles (10 km) to the center of Lebanon.
